Stayed here fore one night last week. First impression was good, the building from the outside looks splendid, especially in the evening when illuminated. We were in room 217 almost directly above and adjacent to a functions room. as soon as we entered the room a band started tuning up below us. I complained to reception that I was hardly...

Very good accommodation, large modern( recently renovated) room in quiet location in and very central for visits to battlefields and a much cheaper and convenient ( by fast train) hotel for day trips to Paris and Charles de Gaulle airport. The in house restaurant is excellent and service good for breakfast and dinner. Arras is itself a picture postcard location...

The hotel firstly is very difficult to find and parking is limited. On arrival the facade is imposing and dramatic with a renaissance type bar and restaurant, but and here is the but. When you get upstairs onto the room floors the carpets are stained and worn and this was the same in the bedroom. The bed was old and...

This hotel was a bit of a disappointment. It is rated as a 4* hotel, but the wi-fi only works in the reception and part of the restaurant. There are no safes or minibars in the rooms, and although the room was nicely decorated (double deluxe) and clean it felt rather long and narrow because of the way the bathroom...

The hotel has a very central location, close to all interesting sites. It looks very elegant. The staff is very helpful and attentive. However the hotel is a bit overpriced; very weak wifi (no free wifi in the room, only in lobby and restaurant), no safe or minibar in the room, and breakfast could be much better for 16 euro...

Nice rooms and with parking(at a price). Sadly the wifi was not working for our stay. Sadly the people who were leaving early in the morning started their cars and made a lot of noise. The staff also made a lot of noise when crossing the car park with trolleys of goods or food and it all started at 6am

This hotel is housed in an historic building which is well located in the centre of Arras. There is a good secure carpark and spaces can be reserved in advance. There is a lift in the hotel but it is an historic building and there are some steps and narrow corridors. The public space and rooms are well decorated. There...

Stayed here for one night at the end of Jun. We asked for a parking space and it was reserved for us which was really helpful as the hotel was full. We had a lovely room in the maze that is the building across the courtyard from reception and on the third floor. Not easy access involving steps, but worth...

A little difficult to find due to one way system but worth the effort. Car park was full but reception help us find a parking spot very near. Rooms are nice and big and have a nice air of luxury. Staff extremely helpful. Restaurant was great but if you have a person who like 'plain' food in your group this...
